“Decent stay for pretty cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stayed here as a last minute scramble when I needed a two night accommodation. I stayed here with my brother who is studying abroad in London. We were on a budget and the price and location of this hotel can't be beat. I would definitely recommend staying here if those are your two biggest concerns. Make sure you don't get a room on the first floor, it is very loud. We tried to switch rooms the first night but there was nothing available, but they were able to move us the second night and it was fine on the third floor. The rooms are a bit smaller but normal by euro standards. The fixtures could use updating in the bathroom and maybe new carpets but these issues are not a huge deal if you are just looking for a decent room to sleep.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room above the ground floor.

I stayed here with my mom while she was visiting me when I was studying abroad at Regent's College which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel was great and our room was great! Very clean and great service! The location is also great since it is a 2 minute walk from Baker Street Station! Overall, great stay!

After having lived in London for nearly 4 years, when I returned for a mini-holiday recently, I knew the exact area where I wanted to stay. The Blandford is such a gem of a hotel! Although the room was tiny, it was clean. Sam, the manager, and the staff were very friendly each time we passed the front desk. Breakfast was an extra bonus. Excellent location as Baker Street tube is very close. If I am lucky enough to return to my favorite city each year, I will plan to book The Blandford Hotel. Fantastic value for money in such an expensive city! Thanks Blandford for making another trip to London so wonderful! S. Lane, Chicago

Having had the usual experiences of hotels in London, I didn't expect much from this hotel. However, when I arrived, I was most pleasantly surprised! It's conveniently located close to Baker St tube station, rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is friendly and service minded. The small hiccup with the (3rd party) hotel reservation site I had prior to arrival, was dealt with very efficient as well. I will most certainly return!

I just stayed here last week while visiting my daughter who is studying abroad in London. The staff was wonderful.They knew who we were every time we came in and were very friendly each time we came and went from the hotel. The room was tiny, but clean and the location was perfect for us. The breakfast could have used some more variety but it was enough to hold us over for the morning. The Baker Street tube station is right around the corner. There is plenty of shopping near by.

I have stayed 2 nights and I was really happy with the accommodation.
Staff was friendly and helpful, location was fabulous, room was single, small but sufficient. Breakfast finishes at 9.30,too early for me.All clean, bathroom has a shower cabin with the shower head attached to the wall so if you want to avoid wetting your hair bring the shower cap! Wi-fi isn't free unfortunately although you do get a complimentary hour.Telephone in my room wasn't working properly,couldn't hear the receptionist, so that should be fixed(room 17).Don't let this put you off though, I am definitely going to be back and would recommend it as its really reasonable for London prices, clean and convenient!
